Bill Nighy by dustsplat Bill Nighy by dustsplat
NOT the science guy

if you are not familiar with him he is the actor who played Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. He is played one of the head vampires in the movie "Underworld"

This was a portrait assignment. im not really keen on painting and drawing perfect exactly copied portraits. Its my preference to create more of a character from the person.

anyways, the image bluntly references his role as davy jones and also the fact that he's an actor from england.

hope ya like

whenever I hear the name 'Bill Nighy' I always think of his line from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1; "These are dark times."

I thoroughly enjoy watching this guy, vampire, sea creature, decadent on a "Pirate Radio" ship. He had the best line in Pirate Radio- "So your mum sent you here in hope that a little bracing sea air would sort you out? Spectacular mistake."

And the guy can dance.

Nice caricature! I think the use of color just makes this have just the right touch of realism, while still keeping the abstractness. Tight-lipped British, you got that part down, no doubt about it...
